Thank you for buying a Blau Automatic Coffeemaker. If you use and maintain your Blau product correctly, you will enjoy it for years to come.

Your coffeemaker is guaranteed to make a perfect cup of coffee every time. First, fill the reusable coffee basket with coffee grounds, adding two tablespoons of grounds per cup. [Crack IELTS with Rob] Next, fill the reservoir with eight ounces of water for each cup of coffee. Place the coffee pot under the coffee basket, making sure that it is directly underneath the drip spout. Press the ‘on’ button located on the coffeemaker’s base.


B.  Built-in convenience

Your Blau Coffeemaker is equipped with a built-in timer. You can set the timer so that your coffee is ready when you get up in the morning when you return from work in the evening, or at any other time you choose. [Crack IELTS with Rob] Just follow the directions above for preparing your coffee. Then set the timer by pushing the button underneath the clock at the front of the coffeemaker. Push twice to put the clock in timer mode. The minutes will flash. Push the button until the minutes are set. Push twice again and the hours will flash. Push the button until the hours are set. Push twice to return the timer to clock mode.


C.   Maintaining your Coffeemaker

Monthly cleaning will keep your coffeemaker functioning properly and your coffee tasting fresh. Just follow these easy steps. Fill the reservoir with a small bottle of vinegar. [Crack IELTS with Rob] Turn your coffeemaker on and let the vinegar run through it, filling the coffee pot. Then fill the reservoir with fresh water and let it run through the coffeemaker. Do this twice to make sure all traces of vinegar are removed.


D.   Really fresh coffee

If your Blau Coffeemaker came equipped with a coffee grinder, then you can enjoy extra fresh coffee every day.

Make sure the lid is securely in place, then press the ‘grind’ button.
